Intel has finally revealed what its discrete Arc graphics cards will look like. During the announcement of its portable Arc GPUs, Intel confirmed that a limited edition of the Intel Arc GPU will arrive this summer.
Now, why a limited edition? Our guess is that this is Intel’s equivalent of an Nvidia Founders Edition, or an AMD reference design. Mind you, AMD reference cards were initially limited edition but were brought in as a permanent fixture due to gamers response. Hey, we like MSRP cards that are well designed.
Let’s hope that’s the case here, but it’s great to finally see Intel reveal what at least one of their boards will look like. It is required to have partners for other cards, however. So if you don’t like the look of this one, I’m sure there will be more out there for you to choose from.
